When we arrived at Lord Balfour we were a little frazzled as the airline had misplaced my luggage. Jóse was so understanding and attentive to our concerns, every time we asked he would ring the airline to find out where our luggage was, suffice to say that it never arrived in the 2 days that we were there! We decided...

Great little hotel with lovely outdoor space. Restaurant/bar use to be owned by the hotel, not independently owned. My wife ordered a wine, which was bad, so she sent it back after tasting. Bartender was nice, and replaced. Manager, looked at the wine my wife returned, and poured back into the bottle. Gross. Needless to say, she didn't have a...

Everyone raved about this place, we booked based on ratings. Cons: Our room was tiny, overlooked the alley and had exactly two towels. No face cloths, one hand towel. Just kind of motel six esque rooms. All tolerable stuff. Biggest issue was the noise, I'm a light sleeper but between the people upstairs stopping and slamming all night and noise...

We discovered this hotel because of a good deal on the internet. It's located at the south end of Ocean Drive. The hotel itself is old, but has been renovated with care and a good eye for quirky design. The breakfast is affordable and offers a good standard including a small selection of warm food (sausages, eggs, bacon, vegetables). The...

We stayed 4 nights and payed 35 a night for parking. It's super close to the beach and you can have deck chairs and towels at the beach. The gym is like a sauna with a few weights and 3 cardio machines. It's right on south beach, right where the action is. The room was small but had everything we...

Tripsters- We booked our rooms via Hotwire Hot Rate. We took a chance and it paid off!! We arrived and checked in without incident. Props to the staff for the Suite upgrade our mothers got since the room we ordered for them was not available. The staff was insanely friendly/professional and the rooms were stellar!!

We eat at some of the best places around the world and this place gives you everything your are looking for. You get that big city fine dining feeling with the that casual relax no rush vibe.
